2018 Ram 1500 vs 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in New Orleans Area

When you're looking for a powerful work truck capable of keeping up with you, there's only one choice: Ram. Ram makes trucks for real truck drivers, people who know what while style is nice, what really makes or breaks a truck is what it can do. There are many competitors in the pickup field, such as the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, but none can match the Ram 1500. Here are just a few reasons why:

  • Price: The Ram 1500's starting price of $27,095 MSRP is markedly more affordable than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500's starting price of $27,785 MSRP.
  • Trims: The Ram 1500's selection of 9 trim levels just you much more agency over available features and functions than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500's selection of 8 trim levels.
  • Standard Power: While both trucks come with a standard V6 engine, the Ram 1500's boasts more muscle with 305 horsepower, easily out-pacing the Silverado 1500's standard 285 horsepower with ease.
  • Smooth Ride: The Ram 1500's standard 8-speed automatic transmission provides a smoother and more enjoyable ride than the Silverado 1500's standard 6-speed automatic transmission.
  • Efficient: The Ram 1500's base V6 engine is capable of maintaining an EPA-estimated 25 miles per gallon on the highway, pulling ahead of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500's base engine's EPA-estimated efficiency of 24 miles per gallon on the highway.
  • Convenience Tech: The base Ram 1500 comes with the option of Bluetooth connectivity and parking assistance features; you'll have to move up to higher trim levels in the Silverado 1500 to even have the option of adding these features.
  • Colors: With a total of 19 exterior colors, the Ram 1500 gives you more ways to make your truck unique; the Silverado 1500's 10 exterior color options simply don't provide the same variety.
